A message to my students:

Ordinary 4th graders make progress. But in my class, you will SOAR for 2 reasons:

1. Your teacher believes in you.

2. You need to believe in you.


That means being willing to make mistakes and get back up and try again.

My class is the perfect place to feel safe enough to make mistakes - without being judged!
